Breakfast in a jar

I’ve never been a morning person. Which makes my breakfast habits kinda erratic. On good days I might be able to sit down with a bowl of cereal, but most days I am running out the door with a cookie in my hand. Digestive, not chocolate chip, heh heh ;) Sometimes I buy a  sandwich or a yogurt, but I can’t say that it’s a habit.

The other day when I bought a yogurt cup, I thought, ‘I could do that myself’. And the next thought was, ‘Well, why don’t I?!’

Feeling inspired I Googled ‘breakfast in a jar recipes’ and found so many interesting articles like this one and that one. Great thing is I don’t need to be a pro at this – basically fruit layered with yogurt layered with nuts layered with cereals. I can rattle off a list of options to choose from – oats, granola, regular cereals, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, dried fruit, frozen fruit, frozen berries, honey, seeds, jams, jellies and what-not. The possibilities are endless, and I can tailor this to whatever I feel for on that day. Or the night before, in case I do the overnight version. No more missing breakfast!
